Christopher Owens @ Bowery Ballroom, 1/22/2013
Christopher Owens

Christopher Owens played his first of two Bowery Ballroom shows last night (1/21). Playing the bulk of his solo debut, Lysandre, which barely clocks in at a half-hour, the former Girls frontman then came back for a set of covers. Given the '70s AM vibe of his album, his choices seemed pretty appropriate: Cat Stevens' "Wild World," Donavan's "Lalena," Simon & Garfunkle's "The Boxer," The Everly Brothers' "Let it Be Me" and Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right."

Melted Toys opened the night and will do so again with Owens tonight (1/22) and tickets are still available. Pics from Melted Toys set and more of Owens' are below.

Didn't Kurt Cobain kill himself a few years ago? Who's the clone?

I really wanted to like his solo album but I can't get into it.

Saw the Toronto show... it was fine, but the first set is comprised of his new solo record in its entirety, played in album sequence. It's an enjoyable enough record, but damn short. Then they played those same 5 cover tunes as an encore. Why they didn't flesh out such a pathetically small setlist with some Girls songs is beyond me. Anyway, he's laughing all the way to the bank... tix weren't cheap for 35 mins of music.
